The Boston Herald reports about the March for our Lives actions that took place in Boston on March 14 — despite a BPS snow day:
Hundreds of outraged Bay State students — saying they’re tired of active-shooter drills and mass-killing headlines — jammed the State House yesterday to demand stronger gun control, joining the national student walkout movement on their snow day.
Throngs of students from at least 50 schools — including those in Somerville, Boston, Medford, Cambridge, Wellesley and Arlington — shouted “enough is enough” and wielded signs reading “fear has no place in our schools” and “protect our kids, not your guns.”
The Boston Teachers Union supported the students:
The local march was backed by the Boston Teachers Union. The Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence hosted an advocacy training session for students. The youth activism stunned local legislators.
“I’m blown away but not surprised,” said state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Jamaica Plain). “Your sight is so clear. Your moral voice, your moral authority is so needed. I ask you to stick with us and keep pushing us over the weeks to come.”
